"The ancestors passed these songs to us. These are songs that are gifts to us today. So even though these songs were created 150 years ago, we can still use them today," says Dr. Arthur Jones, a psychologist at the University of Denver. As part of a Smithsonian Institution program, he visited a Boys and Girls Club, where he taught spirituals to children who may never have heard them.
